About CRIXlabs, Inc.
Creators of NuSilico, the #1 predictive nanoparticle software used by Pharma.

NuSilico increases the probability of finding the next blockbuster drug. Today, Pharma uses NuSilico to identify unfavorable nanotherapeutic candidates early, potentially saving years of development time and millions of dollars. NuSilico can optimize nanoparticle platforms, increasing their ability to treat diseases such as cancer more effectively and with lower side-effects.

CRIXlab’s unique background in software, nanoparticle synthesis, and imaging helps researchers look at all possible scenarios prior to beginning pre-clinical trials.

NuSilico uses a proprietary database and algorithms to determine the biodistribution and half-life of nanoparticle platforms prior to expensive preclinical trials. Early identification helps ensure the research process is efficient and cost-effective for the client.

CRIXlabs has been accepted into the ROCK Health incubator in San Francisco and have terms on the table with Kleiner Perkins, Mohr Davidow, Aberdare Ventures, and the Mayo Clinic.

They have begun working with a Top 10 Pharmaceutical company on their nanoparticle platforms. They are in active discussions with the Top 5 Pharmaceutical companies for the use of their software.
